In the early hour of the morning, it was confirmed that Prince George and Princess Charlotte of Wales will accompany their parents, The Prince and Princess of Wales to the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.
The Queen died on September 08th at Balmoral Castle. Since then it was George and Charlotte’s first public appearance.
Both George and Charlotte started at the new school on the same day. What was supposed to be a happy start at a new home and a new school has been overshadowed by a life-long loss!
The Prince and Princess of Wales have been very aware and cautious of the situation. George and Charlotte did not attend any of the events since The Queen died. Queen’s other great-grandchildren were present at the vigil on Friday.

Princess Charlotte gave a lovely tribute to Great-Grandmother Queen Elizabeth with a small horseshoe-shaped diamond brooch. From People’s report,
The sweet brooch was gifted to the young princess by Queen Elizabeth herself. Charlotte also wore a hat for the first time at the Westminster Abbey service, a custom for British women when attending formal events. The late monarch was known for wearing her collection of brooches and royal jewelry for sentimental purposes, or as a diplomatic gesture on foreign trips overseas. It’s a sartorial tip she passed onto the Princess of Wales, who has borrowed pieces from the late Queen’s collection in the past for royal events.
It’s been found out by the Royal fan account ‘historyfamousjewels ‘ that the brooch originally belonged to Queen Mary. As per the author of ‘Queen’s jewels’ Leslie Field, who gifted it to Queen Mother Elizabeth. The Queen Mother was seen wearing the brooch in 1920.
Catherine paired the outfit with Queen’s Bahrain Pearl Drop Earrings
Four Strands Diamond and Pearl Choker Necklace
All pieces belonged to Queen Elizabeth II.
The Princess of Wales paired the look with Gianvito Rossi’s ‘Gianvito 105’ Black pumps
and her Stuart Weitzman ‘Muse’ Clutch
Catherine’s hat remains unidentified.
